This new native woodland runs along the shore of Torbeckhill Reservoir. The new planting, designed to link up existing wooded areas, has created a significantly enlarged wildlife habitat. The best access point (on foot) can be found about halfway along the road from Waterbeck to Minsca Farm on the left. A vehicle track/footpath, it's just visible, marked on OS Maps as a dirt road just after Old Torbeckhill.
